2 kiwi fruits, peeled and chopped
2 cups unsweetened dried shredded coconut
1 tablespoon liquid vegan sweetener (maple syrup, agave, etc)
1. Place kiwi into food processor bowl with S blade in place. Add coconut and sweetener. Pulse until mixed, about 20 seconds. It will be a light green crumbly paste when it is finished.
2. Using a 1 tablespoon spring-loaded scoop, press the mixture into the hollow and pack it until it is firm. Squeeze the handle to release the ball from the scoop.
3. Using your hands, carefully press it into shape. I tried rolling them in my hands/palms and they crumbled on me. Repeat with the rest of the mixture until the mixture is used up.
If you don't have a scoop, you can try pressing 1 tablespoon or so amounts together in your hands to make "patties." I do not recommend using the dried defatted coconut, because you can really taste the "defattedness." You can try using sweetened coconut. If you do, I would suggest leaving out the sweetener and then adding it in if you need it.
Source of recipe: I am always interested in looking for dessert types of treats that do not have a ton of added sugar in them. This recipe makes a nice little snack or dessert but they are pretty delicate, so I don't recommend them for packing in lunches (unless you don't mind if they fall apart!). This recipe is vegan and can easily be made raw.
